"As a Marine Corps Senior Leader for 32 years, I have never endorsed a single product.  Saying that, however, I have no choice but to do it now.  The “Adult Leatherman” as I call it; the OM27-S is by far the most common sense, practical and tactical item I have ever seen.  I’m passionately here to express that in the fog of war when lives are on the line, imagine having access to a tool that can do it all!  As a Marine Sniper for over 25 years, they called me a “combat multiplier”, well this tool is a “force multiplier.” I’ve shot off it, I’ve dug a hole is less time, it was used as an IV pole and I even used this tool as a ladder. But, besides the various functions that it can perform, it’s the deployment of it that I am really excited about.  Imagine individual operators having multiple capabilities that they never had before. No more waiting and relying on those that have the right equipment. We know that time is blood and time is something this tool provides in a pinch.  Lastly, spread loading this tool will distribute weight evenly, as it replaces bulky, heavier present day equipment. I wish I had this tool with all my Marines in the Battle of Fallujah in 2004.  Could more lives have been saved if we had this tool’s capabilities in our squads?   ABSOLUTELY! "
